Tyler Perry is an actor, director, producer, and screenwriter from the United States. Perry relocated to Atlanta in 1990, and two years later, I Know I’ve Been Changed was presented for the first time in a community theatre, with the 22-year-old Perry’s $12,000 life savings. The drama addressed topics such as child abuse and broken families while including Christian concepts of forgiveness, dignity, and self-worth.
The musical was a financial flop and had a “less than spectacular” response at first. Perry persisted, and over the following six years, he reworked the musical many times, despite the negative reviews. He retooled the play and restaged it in Atlanta, first at the House of Blues, then at the Fox Theatre, in 1998, at the age of 28. Perry proceeded to produce new theatrical plays, travelling with them on the “Chitlin’ Circuit” and gaining a loyal following among African-American audiences.
Perry invented the Madea persona, a fierce elderly woman, and plays her. Perry’s films range in style from traditional filmmaking techniques to filmed stage shows. Many of Tyler Perry’s theatrical plays have been turned into feature pictures.
During the 1990s and early 2000s, Perry authored and produced a number of theatre plays. Perry has created a number of television shows, the most famous of which being Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, which aired on TBS for eight seasons from June 21, 2006 to August 10, 2012.
On October 2, 2012, Perry and Oprah Winfrey’s Oprah Winfrey Network announced an exclusive multi-year collaboration. Based on Perry’s prior success in this area, the agreement was primarily for the purpose of bringing written programming to OWN. Perry has written several scripted shows for the network, the most popular of which are The Haves and the Have Nots. As of 2014, The Haves and the Have Nots has delivered OWN its greatest ratings to date, with the series being described as “one of OWN’s biggest success stories, replete with the customary betrayals, affairs, and manipulations.”
Perry has also appeared in films that he did not direct, write, or produce, such as Admiral Barnett in Star Trek (2009), the titular character in Alex Cross (2012), Tanner Bolt in Gone Girl (2014), Baxter Stockman in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016), Colin Powell in Vice (2018), Arthur in Those Who Wish Me Dead (2021), and Gus The Truck Driver in PAW Patrol: The Adventures of Gus The Truck Driver in PAW Patrol: The (2021).
Perry was included to Time magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2020. Perry won the Governors Award from the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2020, and the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award from the Academy Awards the following year.
